I remember having fun playing the Flash game Starcom. What’s the connection?
Starcom (the Flash game) was one of the first games I made. While short, it turned out to be quite popular, with over 2 million plays worldwide. Starcom: Nexus is not exactly a sequel, but will feature some of the same elements and have familiar combat mechanics. It will also be a much deeper game with more RPG elements, exploration and story.
